Diabetes affects lung function

Rate this post

Researchers from the Netherlands have found that diabetes may cause impaired lung function, similar to that found in smokers.

The study, published in Chest, showed that diabetes causes a significant impairment in lung function. Further analysis also suggested that this impairment is more common in type-2 diabetes rather than type-1 diabetes.
The researchers speculate that diabetes may speed up lung function decline in those with chronic lung conditions, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
